Q.anymore flowers after this?

Zone ? | Marie123 added on July 12, 2012 | Answered

Will my chilli pepper regrow anymore flowers after those few have dropped off this year? I am growing them indoors and I have just found on your website that I should help pollinate the flowers, as no insects indoors, so is it over or can I expect and help to re-flower? Thanks. Marie

They will flower more. As you are growing indoors, you may have to help the plant along a little with pollination. When the plant flowers again, just give it a gentle shake once a day or so. Outdoors, peppers are pollinated by both insects and the wind. By shaking the plant a little, you are imitating the wind moving the plant. A fan will also work.
